Using a field to name a map sheet

The map sheet's name provides it with an identifier so it can be referenced. The map sheet name will be used for the file name when a map is saved with the Individual Map Documents storage option. The field used to name all the map sheets can be changed. This can be changed at the map sheet level or applied to all map sheets if set at the map series level.
